I found a rose painting junkin!

I was thrifting or junkin last night. I stopped at a thrift store that has 25% off on Tuesday nights. Nada! I was going to head to Saver's and I thought...might as well go to Goodwill (we have 3 here...2 of them I frequent...the other one is out of the way of everything). This is the one that is out of the way...I hadn't been there for awhile, so I thought I might as well...I have the time. Boy am I glad I did. I found an oil rose painting! And it was so cheap! I collect rose paintings and this one is so pretty and different. It has very chunky, thick roses. I also found an old pottery lamp with roses and it has the original pottery finial. I've actually never seen one of those! I got "Glee" the first season brand new and never opened for $6! I almost bought it at Target for $30. I am so glad I didn't. I've seen some of them, but it's on Wednesday nights and I help out with our church youth group so I've been missing them. I just love that show!

  4. Hello
    Thank you for stopping by and leaving such a nice comment. I love the apron you made... it is so cute! I raised 5 girls and one son but I couldn't have done it without a sewing machine:) all those dresses I made... good luck with sewing you won't regret buying a machine!

  5. Great find Rachel....I was so sorry to miss your giveaway!

  6. Goodwill is so hit and miss here. I can go 10 times and not find a thing, then hit the jackpot with something just great like you found. So, I don't give up!
